Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has made himself even more of a favourite at Anfield, after responding expertly to shut down Chelsea’s official Twitter page.
After the Blues posting a video of Gianfranco Zola pulling off some trademark trickery to get past the former Reds defender, Carragher returned fire by posting an image of Luis Garcia’s infamous ghost goal from a Champions League clash between the two sides.

For the past decade, the football world has debated whether Garcia’s effort, which saw the Reds advance to the Champions League final and win the competition, actually crossed the line.
It remains a sore subject for Chelsea fans, who insist the goal should not have stood, but for Liverpool fans it’s been a brilliant source of winding up the rival supporters.
The two giants of English football are sat first and second in the table as they fight for the Premier League title, with Liverpool already earning early bragging rights after their victory at Stamford Bridge back in September.
A second clash between the two title rivals is scheduled for the end of January, which could have a dramatic effect on the course of the Premier League title race.
